Converting a logical chassis cluster to a fabric cluster
To transition all nodes in a logical chassis cluster to a fabric cluster, using default configurations, perform these steps:
- Make sure all the nodes that you intend to transition from a logical chassis cluster to a fabric cluster are online. Run either the show vcs or show vcs detail command to check the status of the nodes.
- Log in to the principal node on the logical chassis cluster.
Run the following command to convert all RBridge IDs:
no vcs logical-chassis enable
NOTETo convert just one RBridge ID, specify the ID as shown in the following example: no vcs logical-chassis enable rbridge-id rbridge-id default-config.
The nodes automatically reboot in fabric cluster mode. Plan for some down time for this transition.
- Run either the show vcs or show vcs detail command to check that all nodes are online and now in fabric cluster (listed as "Local-only" in the command output) mode.
